Crazy about Mad Men!



Ok, I know I am really late to the party on this one, but I have discovered the show that everyone is raving about, Mad Men. I have only made it halfway through the first season, but I am already addicted to the drama, the witty social commentary, and, definitely, the fashion!

I have decided that I would like to look like a mix between the lovely, lady-like Betty (above) and the gorgeous, bombshell, Joan (pictured below). I might have to start wearing more red this fall..oh my!

However, does anyone worry about all the smoke the actors must inhale while shooting this show? I know it is for the sake of historical accuracy, but the characters smoke so often, I worry about the actors!

I read in TV Guide that they only smoke harmless cigarettes called "Ecstasy" that taste TERRIBLE but are only herbs. You aren't allowed to make actors smoke real cigarettes anymore. There is a LOT of smoking in that show!

Thanks for stopping by my blog...hope you'll visit again soon. I know that I'll be checking in to see what's happening with Happy Dailey. By the way, we started watching Mad Men last year and I am addicted. You right about the smoking...it's hard to imagine that people used to really smoke in public places and offices like that.

I haven't seen Mad Men, but the outfits are quite lovely.
